St. Rita's Catholic school is a wonderful school. Their intelligent and caring staff and faculty genuinely care for all students and they guide them to be the best that they can be, by example. Many students who have graduated from St. Rita's gotaccepted to catholic high schools with partial or even full scholarships, based on their entry exams alone. They also offer extracurricular activities for kids, including sports, music, coding, etc.

My family and I have been part of the St. Rita`s school community for 9 years now. We originally enrolled our son at preschool, thinking that it would just be for a year or two and then move on to public school. Little did we know the impact the school and staff would have on him and our family. From the beginning, you can see and feel how much the staff truly cared for the students. The program the preschool offered and still offers is enriching, and fully engaged my hyper and easily bored toddler. By the time he was ready to move on to kindergarten, he was already on the verge of reading! We were so impressed with what they did for my son, that once he was ready for Kindergarten, he continued into St. Rita`s school and we also enrolled our daughter into their preschool. The one thing that I was truly touched by was how well all the kids, from all the grades interacted with each other. Both my son and daughter already had friends with the kids at the "Big school", even when they were still in preschool. The older kids looked out for the younger kids, like an older sibling would. Not once have my children complained about bullying at St. Rita`s. I attribute this a lot to the culture and teachings of the faculty. The teachers not only knew their students well, but they also took the time to get to know the students from other grades. Every teacher my children have had, has brought their own creativity and value into St. Rita`s school. If you are were thinking about Catholic education for your children, St. Rita`s school is the answer. This is a school that truly practices what they preach and teach the kids. It is a family-based community, where not only do the children make life long friends, but so do the parents. Sending our children to St. Rita`s has been one of the best investments we`ve made in our kids and one of our biggest blessings. Even if you may think or assume that you cannot afford to send your kids to St. Rita`s, please talk to our Principal. She has been the biggest advocate and reason why our school has been able to offer financial assistance to those that need it. You will not find a harder working school leader than the one we have.

St. Rita's school has been one of the best investments, for our children, that we have ever made. Our two children get to experience a family-oriented, faith-based school, where they can feel totally safe. The staff and teachers at St. Rita's really go above and beyond my expectations.

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
